ANM Insights are a series of validated assessments and workshops designed to help clients learn more about their environments, prioritize gaps, and tackle key architectural decisions. We offer these engagements free to clients so they can gain the Insights they need to achieve freedom from nagging IT issues and instead focus on innovation.
ANM Assessments are discovery tools to learn more about your environment to identify potential risks and gaps to best practices.
Cisco UCS Health Check
Cisco UCS Health Check provides a technical assessment of your UCS server infrastructure and is designed to identify configuration, security, performance, and availability problems before they might affect your critical operations. ANM will assess your environment through a combination of interactive discussions, tool-based data collection and systems review by an ANM data center expert.
VMware Health Check
VMware Health Check provides a technical assessment of your VMWare infrastructure and is designed to identify configuration, security, performance, and availability problems before they might affect your critical operations. ANM will assess your environment through a combination of interactive discussions, tool-based data collection and systems review by an ANM data center expert.
Cisco Identity Services Engine
Identity Services Engine is an engineering-led assessment that will provide your team reporting on performance and configuration as well as an effectiveness rating of your existing ISE architecture. ANM will work to identify configuration and policy issues with your ISE deployment along with recommending approaches to improve performance, management, scalability, and effectiveness of your ISE environment.
Network Infrastructure provides an assessment of your network environment designed to aid in device discovery and inventory, but more importantly, pinpointing performance problems, security vulnerabilities, and crucial lifecycle milestones of your critical infrastructure. Problems identified early are problems you can remediate before it’s too late.
ANM provides an assessment of your Palo Alto firewalls and Panorama management to ensure they align with current best practices. This includes identifying potential misconfigurations and features that have not yet been enabled on your platform.
Email Threat Assessment
Taking only 90 minutes, get visibility on attacks your defenses missed. ANM will configure the email threat assessment for Microsoft 365 users, which highlights in a report any malicious emails that bypassed your defenses in the past six months.
ANM Workshops are deep dive technical and architecture sessions designed to help our teams collaborate on key use cases.
Application-centric micro segmentation is a powerful tool to gain detailed visibility, lock down lateral movement and limit the surface area that adversaries can use to attack your systems. This interactive workshop covers the concepts, technologies, and strategies to help your organization develop a roadmap for implementing micro segmentation in your data center and cloud environments.
Given the litany of potential vulnerabilities and security concerns, prioritization is a key challenge for clients everywhere. ANM’s Cybersecurity Assessment will help evaluate the current state of your cybersecurity posture to identify strategic initiatives and tactical guidance that will enhance your overall security posture. This will be facilitated by evaluating your current controls and benchmarking them against industry-leading cybersecurity frameworks such as NIST CSF.
Data Integrity: Securing Data Protection Systems
Constant threats of destructive malware, ransomware, malicious insider activity, system failure and even honest mistakes create the imperative for organizations to be able to quickly recover from an event that alters or destroys data. Your organization must be confident that they can recover data within identified SLAs while maintaining data integrity and making sure that recovered data is accurate, complete, and free of malware.
Zero Trust Workshop
As the perimeter has dissolved and users and apps have migrated outside of your four walls, having a centralized security policy delivered ubiquitously has become mission critical. Zero trust architectures ensure users, regardless of location, only have access to the data and applications they need to be successful.
